[ laughter ] >> thank you. the train is just such an important part of the entire peninsula, and it's growing in popularity all the time. over 50,000 people a day are riding it now. when we first started there were about 16,000 and it was just hanging by a thread. it's doing extremely well and the hope is to take it to downtown san francisco and electrification is underway. i would like to get back to one thing you said, mr. yee, i think almost had an opportunity on december 28th to go to the divisions. and i went to woods and i know others went different places. i learned some things and there were some questions and i think at some

. >> president yee? >> aye. >> seven ayes. >> the next item. >> mr. davis, did you have a statement? was there something else we were supposed to do or just vote on it? >> there is not an additional statement other than the one i have sent out to the board members on two occasions just explaining that commissioner maufas' request based upon her employment with a non-profit organization is a remote activity, which is approvable and in compliance with the california government code provisions our policy is more stringent and that and it would take a waiver of our board policy for her to be totally on this position. that is what this is for. >> so is the recommendation to do a waiver then? >> yes. the recommendation is a waiver. >> the waiver is actually imbedded in this. >> okay good. thank you. any other commissioner comments? >> yes, i have a question for our attorney. i see that this is for the oaks children center and that is the place of employment of commissioner maufas, is that correct? >> yes, ma'am. >> so that would seem that commissioner maufas would be not able to

of measured projects the central subway, as was mentioned in mr. yee 's report, we'll have issues before the board of supervisors on an ongoing basis. pagoda palace. as well as the transportation sustainability program, which is a major initiative, looking to evolve how away from a level of service-oriented fee-based system to one that looks more broadly across impacts for development in the city. on the state portion as i mentioned we have not just a new two-year session, but a real historical moment in sacramento with two-thirds democrats, as well as a democratic governor. it's an opportunity that the majority party is mindful of not squandering and with regards to initiatives that we'll see this year, i think the vlf is something that is being talked about as another opportunity for transportation funding at the state level, something that previous administrations have not wanted to look at in terms of bringing that state vehicle license fee back up to historical levels. if that happens, i think we in san francisco have to be mindful that we uniquely already have that authority and to
. >> okay. so, we have, mr. yee, you want to respond to that, please? >> good afternoon, mr. chair, members of the board, mr. reiskin. vaughan yee from stainable streets. let me address the sixth street toll item first. that was as you remember, a pilot project that the board approved on october 17th, 2011 as part of a pedestrian safety enhancement program that we were undertaking. as you know, sixth street in this corridor, is very noted for -- it's higher than average pedestrian and collision accident history. so, the proposal was to test pilot a removal of the tow-away on the east side of the street for the blocks from folsom to market to allow parking there during the peak. and it had several benefits. one is that it physically narrows the street a little bit to allow a shorter crossing distance for the pedestrians crossing sixth street. it provides a very useful and beneficial buffer between moving vehicles and pedestrians on the sidewalk. and if successful, this space will allow us in the future to construct corner intersection [speaker not understood] or bicycle parking and [speaker
